WAND Arts, Crafts
and Hobbies Taxonomy
The WAND Arts, Crafts and Hobbies Taxonomy covers products and services related to crafts and hobbies. The coverage
includes art supplies, craft and hobby equipment and supplies and finished crafts. Material and supplies for displaying
artwork, crafts and hobbies and services related to these areas are also included.
Unstructured data is believed to account for 80 to 85% of a typical organization’s internal information. Company docu-
ments, articles, spend data, and other unstructured information needs to be quickly and easily accessible by your or-
ganization’s employees. A company’s products and service are its backbone and a high-quality and well-structured
vocabulary of the standard product and service terms that are important to your company is crucial for your employees
to unlock the value of unstructured data in your company.
Applications
The WAND Arts, Crafts and Hobbies Taxonomy can be licensed and integrated into your existing intranet, content man-
agement application, spend management system, spend analysis application, knowledge management portal, or any
other application that would benefit from the power of a robust taxonomy-based search.
Unstructured information from a variety of repositories can be consistently organized and searched by:
• Relevant and intuitive product and service categories
• Hierarchical drill-down browsing
• Numerous slices or segments of the taxonomy
• Related terms which may link to previously unknown information
• Filtered Search
• Any combination of taxonomy pathways which funnel the users to the information they need
Structure and Delivery
The WAND Arts, Crafts and Hobbies taxonomy consist of a controlled vocabulary of terms with multiple relationships
such as hierarchical parent-child relationships, related terms, and synonyms. Many of the terms are associated to attri-
bute and attribute value templates for specification based descriptions. Language translations of the product and service
terms (not attributes/attribute values) are available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese,
Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese. The Taxonomy is cross-mapped to many alternate
classification systems including UNSPSC, NAICS, SIC, Harmonized Codes and Standard Yellow Page
